To Our Current and Future Representatives - Wherever They May Be:
We can never forget we are a nation of immigrants.
We cannot fall prey to fear, ignorance and anger when we have been historically driven by freedom and justice.
We must have the courage and will to fight hate, bigotry and prejudice.
We must not wake up to what we hoped was a bad dream and realize we have neglected our patriotism and democratic principles.
We will protest against the current contempt of our institutions so as not to leave a legacy of cowardice and apathy to our children.
We will never allow ourselves to become numb, and we will stop the pendulum of history before it swings toward our very own dystopia.
